Chuckwagon Goat Cheese Burgers with Onion Jam
Ingredients
2
pounds ground beef
1
recipe Onion Jam
4
ounces goat cheese (chevre)
2
teaspoons kosher salt
1/2
teaspoon crushed red pepper
12
slices Texas toast
 
Goat cheese (optional)
 
Golden tomato wedges (optional)
Directions
  1. Combine the ground beef, half of the Onion Jam, the 4 ounces goat cheese, the salt, and the red pepper in a large mixing bowl. Divide mixture into 6 portions and form each portion into a patty about 1 inch thick.
  2. Place burger patties on the lightly oiled rack of the grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 18 to 23 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in centers registers 160 degree F, turning burgers once halfway through grilling.
  3. Grill the Texas toast, if desired. Spread 6 slices with some of the remaining Onion Jam and top each with a grilled burger patty. Top with additional goat cheese, if desired. Top with the remaining Texas toast slices. Serve with any remaining Onion Jam and, if desired, golden tomato wedges. Makes 6 burgers.
